v2n3: Space Cookie

"The combined length of the vertebrae of the dinosaur is directly proportional to the inverse of the square root of the rhomboidal axes of its brain."

Ooklak studied the curious text intently. The symbols were unlike anything he'd ever seen on Baltazar. An accompanying hologram pictured a race of huge beings, certainly of inferior intelligence. The wrecked USA probe also contained a shiny disk made of unfamiliar material, labeled "CD-ROM."

Instinctively, he held the disk to his flarf orifice and took a bite. "Blatz!" he snorted. Another space cookie. He tossed it aside and continued toward the Craters of Heblon.
